For Hannah Corey it doesn’t get much better than spending the summer before her senior year working for Anheuser-Busch making some of the best beer in the world.

As an Anheuser-Busch Agronomist Intern in Idaho Falls, Idaho, Corey is spending the summer working on the company’s barley production team.

“Here in Idaho, we grow the barley and turn it into malt for beer production,” said Corey. “Three out of every six pack of Budweiser’s are made with Idaho barley!”

Corey’s focused on three main tasks this summer: a soil health project, a barley production guide and SmartBarley grower surveys.

Several field days are happening across the state throughout the month of June. Hear from our faculty experts along with other faculty and Extension and Outreach specialists about a variety of crop and pest related topics.
